Anyone seen HCC's review of the Panasonic DMR-HS2? I was wondering how they rated it as a DVD player. If it is a good/very good DVD player then it sounds like the ultimate machine to me; 40gb hard drive - record any TV programmes (up to 50 hrs worth) on to this then archive them on to DVD-R if you want to keep them for good. Copy anything you've got on video tape on to the hard drive then edit out the crap/adverts and copy it on to DVD-R. Copy movies from your digital camcorder on to the hard drive and, again, edit it and copy it on to DVD-R. It's even got a slot for digital camera memory cards! I think I want one - the only sticking point is a lack of multi region compatibility. Matt.
